Anatoly is very friendly and knowledgeable about Moscow and Russia and he adapted our tour to suit our slower walking pace. He helped us secure a Bolshoi tour and took us to some hidden sights in the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trevor and Jane, it was my pleasure, you are very kind, thank you!
Joan JacobsonNewhall, CA, United States
Anatoly was a wonderful guide who assisted us in learning about my favorite Russian authors, Tolstoy and Pasternak. He took us out of town to Peredelkino (Pasternak's grave and dacha) and Tolstoy's house museum in Central Moscow. He was easy to work with by e-mail in setting up this custom tour and was able to modify it when I needed a private car and driver due to a hip injury. His English was impeccable and he was a friendly, knowledgeable guide. We highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joan and Jeff, it was a genuine pleasure to meet and spend a day with you. My warmest wishes, Anatoly
Paul ClitesHouston, TX, United States
I had toured Moscow once before, so I asked Anatoly to take me to sights beyond the usual. He did a great job and packed in more than seemed possible. He used a very good driver (Igor) with who I never had to cringe in Moscow traffic. Anatoly is friendly and quickly became like a friend. Also went beyond the normal to help me with a train ticket issue even though it was 20 minutes beyond what I had signed up for. I like his pick from a menu approach to touring Moscow. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Paul, I enjoyed your fascinating travel stories. My very best regards to you and your family. Anatoly
Anatoly is very knowledgeable on all aspects Moscow life and history and visiting Moscow guided by him allows you to really discover Moscow in a quite enjoyable walk. I asked a customized visit and he scheduled and prepared everything upfront allowing is to leverage as maximum the tour time.Very much I recommend Anatoly to anyone visiting Moscow.

Anatoly was on time, considerate of my bad knee, knowledgeable, and friendly. I have already recommended him to my friends.
Fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and very obliging - went out of his way to make sure we had a great day. A genuine, kind man with a great personality. Would highly recommend you book a tour with Anatoly if you're in Moscow. We did a "free day" tour which Anatoly helped us plan. Everything was perfect. A thoroughly enjoyable and stress free day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Samantha thank you sincerely for your judgement, I also had good time with you. My best wishes.
JoAnn L.United States
We did a three-day custom planned tour with Anatoly. He was an excellent guide, thoroughly knowledgeable about all things in Moscow and able to give thoughtful answers to more nuanced questions, which was greatly appreciated, not just "That is a complicated question." We felt he added a lot to our experience and we enjoyed him personally as well. One day he didn't feel well, but he gave us a complete 8-hour day anyway. He was on time, the order of sites toured was sensible and efficient. Kudos to him

We really enjoyed our private tour of Moscow. Having seen the major sights the day day before he scheduled a private tour of the Bolshoi theatre...it was amazing, gorgeous, and extremely informative. He asking took us to Christ the Savior Church/Cathedral which is one of the most beautiful churches I've seen. Finally Anatoly took us to the space museum, a must on my husbands list! He really appreciated the knowledge and history provided as he was in the aerospace industry for many year. Thank you Anatoly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mary and Lu, it was my pleasure to be your guide, I'm so glad you enjoyed Moscow!

Thomas BrassUnited States
A great guided tour by a wonderful guide who's knowledge, efficiency and tailoring the tour of Moscow to my interest was second-to-none! I would not hesitate recommending Anatoly for anyone looking for a full-day of sightseeing within the city center as well as Moscow's periphery. I do not believe I could have seen and experienced everything I did without his assistance. His City Lights tour is also not to be missed!
My wife and myself had Anatoly for the whole day tour in Moscow. He showed us all the must see of Moscow starting from 8 at our hotel to 5 . We have travelled numerous countries and joined numerous tours and I can assure you that you will not regret with Anatoly. He was very patient courteous and professional in his duties as a tour guide. After a couple of hours with us he knew our likings and veered the days tour to the areas we prefer. We wouldn't have covered such a huge area without him. Great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, I enormously enjoyed the day myself, you and your wife were so kind and resourceful. Thank you!
Dr Joseph RomanoUnited States
Anatoly was great! He had a command of the sites and hstory and was very personable. We shared the entire day and drove to outer city sites; excellent. We shared lunch at a local buffet and had a good meal near the Kremlin which was inexpensive. I highly recommend this tour/guide and once of the best I have hired. His English was terrific and his knowledge of our culture and needs was wonderful. Highly endorsed.
Anatoly was very accommodating. He gave an interesting afternoon tour by car and a wonderful night tour all around the city.
Anatoly was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about almost everything. He led us to good dining spots and places we never would have gone to on our own. The tour of the Tretyakov Gallery was superb.
Pyers TuckerUnited Kingdom
Anatoly was very knowledgeable and hospitable. His Landrover Discovery was perfect for my family of 5 people. He looked after us very well and we gained a good introduction to Moscow and how to do the rest of your visit over the following few days. He also showed us how to use the Metro which was really helpful too. I would thoroughly recommend him. The tour was also very good value for money and easy and efficient to set up
Larry BryantUnited States
Great communication skills, knowledgable, flexible, personable, thoughtful, experienced, insightful, engaging, unselfish, intellectual, friendly, and committed to deliver highest level of service. I spent 9 hours with Anatoly and he tolerated my (frequent) need to stop and take photos. He offered options and recommendations. And he accepted my request for the tour despite less than 24 hrs notice. I would go 6 stars if I could.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry, this is far beyond I could have expected, thank you! I'll remember that rainy and then sunny day and I'll wait for your shots to be published. My warmest regards, Anatoly
